Twitter Web App : And now its time to say goodbye... for the weekend. I'm back off social media to try & enjoy the rest of family half term. See you Mon (not literally, well not more than 5 of u anyway).

PS My team'll be posting SUBTITLED versions of the two video briefings for me tomorrow am.

Twitter Web App : I use it as a practical example as to qualify you need have bare min had 50% plus self-employ earnings for 2018/19 tax year.

So if someone started self employ end Oct 18 (half thru tax year), even if they managed to earn same as employed earnings from day 1, they'd not qualify. twitter.com/victodd/status…

Twitter Media Studio : Yet again @10downingStreet turned down MSE & I asking a question of the Chancellor (no idea why).

Here’s what I would’ve asked the Chancellor had I been allowed.

Twitter Web App : Dr Sally Le Page Rishi Sunak You are right there isn't parity. Yet the key factor the other way round is that the self employed have from March - June been able to work and get the SEISS, furlough scheme mostly couldn't (they could work for others only if employer allowed)

Twitter Media Studio : NEWS (pls share) Furlough scheme extended until October. You can work part time for your firm from 1 July. Firms will start to contribute slightly from August.
My instant video briefing takes you through how it works crucially what youll earn if you do work part time.

TweetDeck : I've just recorded full video briefings explaining how the new "work while furloughed" scheme works and the 2nd self employment grant. My team are working on posting them here now (as they're too long for standard upload). Watch this space.

TweetDeck : WHAT IS UK Prime Minister SCARED OF?

Today the Chancellor makes his next big support scheme announcement. MSE & I've been explaining these for 10wks, with millions following our journalism

And again No10's just said "No, you CAN'T ask Q at the press conference"

Feel free to RT

Twitter Web App : Not sure how it's 'ahead of anyone else'. Many journalists've already asked questions.

As for why? MSE's by many times UK's biggest consumer/financial website with 15m+ mthly users, 10m getting our email. Our Covid fin guides've been goto reading for millions & we've key Qs twitter.com/Bavey/status/1…

Twitter Web App : No one has done a better job than Martin Lewis explaining benefits – and shortcomings – of the gov't furlough scheme.
The gov't has widened pool of journalists asking questions at these press conferences. Why not allow someone who actually knows what he's talking about to ask q? twitter.com/MartinSLewis/s…
